Use this oneAirlineRatings.com, a global airline safety, and product rating website, has announced its Top Twenty Safest Airlines 2021 from the 385 different airlines it monitors. The Top 20 in order are:

  1. Qantas
  2. Qatar Airways
  3. Air New Zealand

  16. SAS
  17. Finnair
  18. Lufthansa
  19. KLM
  20. United Airlines

According to AirlineRatings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas, these airlines are standouts in the industry and are at the forefront of safety, innovation, and launching of new aircraft. “For instance, Australia’s Qantas has been recognised by the British Advertising Standards Association in a test case as the world’s most experienced airline,” Thomas said. “Qantas has been the lead airline in virtually every major operational safety advancement over the past 60 years and has not had a fatality in the pure jet era,” he added. “But Qantas is not alone. Long established airlines such as Hawaiian and Finnair have perfect records in the jet era.”

According to Thomas, the editors analyse: crashes, serious incidents, audits from aviation’s governing bodies and lead associations; government audits, and fleet age in making their determinations. “However all airlines have incidents every day, and many are aircraft or engine manufacture issues, not airline operational problems. It is the way the flight crew handles these incidents that determines a good airline from an unsafe one,” Thomas said.
